Fun! I know so much more about you now. I like knowing these things better than the other thing I learned about you from your blog about Lucky. ha ha

Capt. Flipout said...

Welcome vback!

Kimberly said...

You're back! Yeah!

#10 - I forget. Why didn't you call us? And the baby clothes - they were soooooooooo cute!

Doubtful Muse said...

Two questions:

1) Do you really have 25 Monkees CDs?

2) Do you still drink that weird colored soda pop? (can't remember the color or what it was called -- just that it was something that did NOT exist in nature!)

1) At least. It may actually be more.
2) Hmm... was it Blue Pepsi? Cause they don't make that anymore...

Doubtful Muse said...

Now that you mention it, it *was* blue. ~Shudder~ I guess, if they don't make it anymore, I wasn't the only one to have that reaction then. I had no idea the Monkees made 25 CDs. Live and learn...

#4 - my first beer was a heinenken. it's all uphill from heinenken.

#7 - if i was a girl version of me, i would crush on you big time for this. my favorite bad horror movies:
-SILVER BULLET
-THE LOST BOYS
-CHRISTINE
-MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE
-CREEPSHOW 2
-JAWS
-SLITHER
-FRIGHT NIGHT
-DOG SOLDIERS

#11 - the boy version of me crushes on you for this.

#12 - the older i get, the more i like grey dreary days. like today. very british.

#20 - both genders in me just found their deal breaker.

#21 - korean food is my favorite ethnic food. when i eat something uber-spicy, my bald spot burns. i've only met one other person that burns in their scalp from spicy food. it's euphoric.

#28 - the pointlessness depends on if you chose the argument or if the argument chose you.

#29 - HOLY SHIT! you know lancelot link secret chimp? you have to: it came on nickelodeon at 3:00, right before the monkees at 4:00. recommendation: show your kids the adventures of rocky and bullwinkle. it's crazy smart and punny. people who love words, and want their kids to love words, should watch rocky and bullwinkle on a regular basis.

#30 - i won tickets to billy joel / elton john in the 12th grade. i went with shannon carpenter. i promised myself that i would kiss her during elton john's "can you feel the love tonight" cause she loved that song, but she called me on it right when elton started singing. dude, denied before i even went in for the kill.

#34 - make it easy on yourself: don't vote for any of them. choosing the lesser of two evils is not voting - it's settling in a patriotic box.

#50 - so is mine. dude, we're, like, blessed.
